For the last 10 years I have taken either Kariva, Murcette or Azurette. All of those were fantastic with no residual side effects.

Comment:
Was so scared to switch because of the previous reviews. I was recently on Gildess but it made my periods longer and worse so I asked to switch. I always get nausea with any birth control but I've barely had any, my acne is gone, not sure if I can lose weight yet or not, and I don't feel depressed (and I made the switch during finals week of college). To all the negative reviews, sometimes ... Show Full Comment
